Coming from SA, where halal food is widely available, it’s a bit of an adjustment. Not saying that there aren’t halal foods available in Brisbane but there’s not much variety. There’s a number of Malaysian, Moroccan and Lebanese restaurants here. Let’s just say that after leaving Brisbane, the last thing that I’d want to order is a satay, tagine or a doner kebab.
We’re constantly looking for halal restaurants or the alternative… seafood or vegetarian options but they’re not usually the tastiest of meals.
My brother in-law and sister in law took me to the Eat Street market in Northshore and I just had to go back with Ahmad.
There’s an array of multicolored containers lined up. It’s lit up. It has an amazing vibe and buzzing with families enjoying the various live bands, the outdoor cinema and a variety of delicious snacks and treats.
The following has got to be our faves:
They have the best, fresh fish and chips that I’ve tasted since I’ve been here and it’s accompanied with a creamy tarter sauce. Ensure that you ask them for plain fries and not the beer battered ones and they’ll prepare it separately for you.
I usually stick to my usuals… VIRGIN Strawberry Daquire or the VIRGIN Mohito. Today, for some reason, I’ve been more adventurous and we decided to share a refreshing Mango Coconut Mocktail.
Let’s just say, the next time that we order this – and there will be a next time – I’m not sharing 🙂
The Doughnut Bar
Want to enjoy some fries while you explore ESM? Then head over to The Doughnut Bar and enjoy hot, freshly made doughnut fries dusted with cinnamon sugar and served with a sauce of your choice. We love them plain but try out one of their sauces, it’s said to be really good.

What can I say… the kid in me still loves a good old toffee apple. I’m not thee most adventurous eater so again, I tend to stick to the usual but this time I decided to get the best of both. Bought an original toffee apple and the Hubba Bubba Grape toffee apple which is one of fourteen other amazing flavors.
So if you’re in sunny Queensland, head over to the Eat Street Markets. It’s definitely worth the $2 entry, the river views and the one hundred and eighty dining and entertainment options.
Share your Eat Street pics, experience and suggestions with us. We’d love to hear all about it.
